at the end, how do you make up the cuts for the medicare, how do you bring in the revenue to make sure this is budget-neutral? >> well, that is the whole issue, bill. this is supposed to bring in $150 billion, this health insurance tax, the caddy tax, is supposed to bring in $115 billion in ten years, if you bring in less money than that, where do you get, where do you make up the shortfall, where do you make it up elsewhere? the possibility, or the unions want is that you tax the rich, a 5 percent surtax on people, couples making a million dollars a year or more, that's included in the house version. that's what the unions want. bill: stu, thank you for that, nice of you to size it up and you look great this morning coming in your rolls royce. >> thank you. bill: a great parking lot, too. >> it's a bentley! martha: he's a great parallel parker. also on the health care overhaul this morning, check out these new polls that show opinions about the legislation is hitting new lows in this country. look at these numbers, the radson report from last week asked likely voters will the quality
elderly people may face a tax on a certain medicare program that they now have and that this could actually end up hurting lower income seniors the most and he gives details, specific stories about senior citizens and the kind of pain that they might feel in their pocketbooks. >> right. to avoid taking money in the pocket, they have this thing called medicare advantage. in medicare advantage, my mom actually has it, it's a tremendous boom and people are protective of it. they're allowed to go to private insurance and have them cover themselves. right now, they're going to tax that. won't that work be countederproductive to medicare advantage? there's no advantage. >> apparently, it will impose a tax on medicare, medicaid, the children's health insurance program, chip, and tricare which is for families of military dependents because they -- and because these particular plans have no profits to absorb the tax or pass it on, they'll have only one option and that is bob dole writes, to reduce health care services and that is bad. >> and we should point out that bob dole does say that
it. you know, i've come on with you guys and i think we should have been much clearer about medicare. we understand how it works. it was a democratic initiative. this expanded five years or something like that. >> but, for instance, medicare for all. >> yeah. i mean, i think that that has been messaged very well and i also think let the senate and housework its will, that by definition is an unclear thing and muddled and the like. i also think something else. look, we're doing tough things. you're doing health care no matter who did it you're going to take a lot of lumps for it. i think you can critique how it's done, but there's no doubt the president is trying to solve the problems of the american people. the problem we have, this reminds us more of 1993. the president is doing incrementally good things but we in congress are taking our lumps every step of the way. and i also think when people who are against things are always more animated than people who are for things. there's a lot of headwinds. i don't want to do a postmortem until there's a mortem. >> this could be new hampsh

. let's push people into medicare and medicaid when both of those problems are in deep, financial insolvency. >> in the wake of the election, they will have david pluff, the campaign manager they had in 2008 and he will travel the country and get more involved in campaigns for government and senate and implicit in all that your committee, the campaign committee missed the boat in massachusetts and didn't see this stunning upset coming and they believe almost curcome vent what you're doing so it doesn't happen again. was the failure at your committee and do you need this help or is that meddling? >> we welcome the white house beefing up their elections and, secondly, we didn't start under my term with 60 votes. we had 60 votes. clearly, we did everything we could in massachusetts. i think the big take away from massachusetts, however, is that, in fact, there is enormous economic ankest in the country and people lost their jobs and had a family member who lost their jobs and their house is worth less than their mortgage and that economic anks came out to play in this election and ex
' jewelry sold right here in the united states. we'll have more on what exactly is going on. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> 20 minutes past the hour. we're minding your business right now, and there is a warning out for parents, some chinese manufacturers are now replacing lead in children's jewelry with another dangerous metal, cadmium. the associated press conducted lab tests on more than 100 items purchased in new york, in ohio, texas and california. they found levels of cadmium as high as 91%. it's linked to some cancers and also affects brain development in young children, even more so than lead. the consumer product safety commission now says it is opening an investigation and will take action, quote, as quickly as possible to protect the safety of children. >>> and stephanie elam here minding your business this morning. bonus season just about upon us, and some very happy people. >> i don't know about that. actually, i think a lot of workers are very unhappy, because -- >> the ones receiving the bone uses? >> because they're not as big as they were. this is an issue
's deficit will double it. at the same time that medicare is going bankrupt, social security going bankrupt. medicaid is upside down. this is a nightmare. >> well, first -- >> the bigger crisis is medicare. >> we have had creative accounting and self-dealing going on for a long time. the fed purchases a significant majority of all u.s. debt last year. we have a situation where the housing entities are not being consolidated. they have huge losses. people saying they are doing things to try and help reduce medicare costs, but they are spending the money someplace else. all kinds of creating accounting and self-dealing going on. >> we'll go to chris tnctie in minute. i was struck by the creative accounting. they were making up trillions. you wrote a story mid summer about the fdic created $1 trillion out of thin air by a bureaucratic trick. this creative accounting makes our situation so much worse. >> it does. and, frankly, actually, that decision by the fdic at the time has in a way come back to haunt us. i don't know if you recall at the end of this year, the fdic was almost bankrupt and h
and brought a lot of your medicare care and so we'll look for your reporting on nightly news. dr. snyderman, thank you very much. >>> we want to switch gears and >> we have plenty of rain in the area. the heaviest just north of the city. our forecast for today calling for rain, on again, off again, possibly heavy at times. >>> and when we're not here, you can always check on your weather online at weather.com. now here's jenna. >>> janice, thanks. two university of florida graduate students were in haiti working on a documentary film when the earthquake hit. moments later their cameras started rolling and here to share their incredible story are john and roman. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> you returned yesterday. in fact from what i understand you're both pretty much wearing the same clothes you were wearing while you were down there. we'll get you clothes to change into in a little bit. but, first of all, how are you guys doing emotionally? and then we'll get to exactly what happened. and how were you after the earthquake hit? >> yeah. i think it was definitely a shock
that the bush administration didn't pay for things for eight years. medicare part d, two gigantic tax cuts and they were never paid for. the republican criticisms of the president's programs now about not paying for them, it's important to set the record straight here. >> very quickly. has he worked too closely with congressional democratic leaders and that's what's hurt him with independents? >> i think what's hurt everybody in washington, not just with independents, but democrats and republicans alike is this sense they're not dealing with the real issues that face people's lives. message out of massachusetts was stop messing around. we need an economic strategy. we need jobs. we need you guys to look after our interests and stop the messing around and get to work. i think that was loud and clear. >> former white house communications director, anita dunn. your boss was pretty loose last night though. >> i think he was feeling like he knows where he wants to go. yeah. >> loosy-goosy in a very formal setting. >>> coming up, search teams pull off another miracle rescue in haiti. >>> plus ha
the medicare. >> and then we have to pay 3, 4 billion extra. >> you said the president should rethink health care reform. >> absolutely. that's not health care reform. to go and to put that extra burden, billions of dollars on other states, especially on california. just because we're the best state in the world, the most diverse economy. and everyone wants to come to california is no reason to beat up on california. and to always ask for more money from california. i think it's time for the federal government to go and take care of us. >> is that how you think about health care reform, something that ultimately would beat up on california? >> yes, it is. right now, i cannot imagine why we would have like i said, for instance, our senators and congressional people how they would vote for something like that where they are representing nebraska and not us. and by the way, as i said in my state of the state, that's the biggest rip-off, i mean, that is against the law to buy a vote. >> talking about senator nelson. >> that's like buying a vote to say -- >> the government will pay. >> i'm voting
a policy point of view video what this ended up being was a $2.5 trillion bill, they cut medicare by half a trillion dollars, raised taxes by a half a trillion dollar, drive up insurance premiums for most americans, that's not preform. that didn't have much appeal to republican senators. >> so tick off the top three points of the republican plan for health care reform. >> first you do have to do it on a bipartisan basis. you put the cspan cameras in the room as the president said. you start with junk lawsuits against doctors and hospital, interstate competition among insurance companies, and many of my members would be looking -- willing to look at equalizing the tax code. right now if you're a corporation and you provide insurance, for your employees you get to deduct it on your corporate tax return. if you're an individual on the individual market, you don't. step by step to work on the cost problem. that's what republicans are willing to do. >> is universal coverage a priority? >> expanding coverage is a good idea. but even under this $2.5 trillion monstrosity they didn't end up coveri
entitlements. we all know, we have medicare, social security, the long-term imbalances. those are the big deficit issues. we august to start there. >> i want to go back to this fee again. the too big to fail issue. one of the financial regulatory reform ideas out there have been to create an uber-fdic, and it would essentially, it sounds like, work the same way. these big too big to fail firms have to pay more money into this system, whether it's shelia bair or whatever, but more money into this system. couldn't we just look at it that that way, that this is their too big to fail fee? >> that brings us back to the point you made in the introduction. which is sending a mental about future bailouts. if you're collecting a fee from everyone, or even from just the largest banks, saying, well, that's because of -- we have -- we know you're going to fail, now you've created the biggest moral hazard since fannie and freddie. that's how we got into the huge mess with fannie and freddie, which is we're going to lose even more money than we'll ever lose in the t.a.r.p., because they had an implied
president to talk about reforming medicare and social security. but domestic spending flat lined. we spent more on the border and tripled the size of border and budget of the border patrol and not much spending on homeland security before 9/11. we did under bush after 9/11 and we are in war and we have to pay for it and fight it. >> karl may hook like he is unplugged. but not until we roll animation. roll it >> karl, we want to and you about this new capitol hill casa nova. stories came out that the budget director is engaged to a beautiful woman and abccorrespondant. he is not the cuddy. >> he is a definition of a nerd and a color past. what is this phenomenon, karl in washington d.c. where geeks are studs, please explain it to us. >> power is an aprodizziac or up toees. it is amazing. we have a secretary of treasury . director of the office management engaged to eye beautiful woman and a love child from a previous relationship and conceived in the moment after he onb director whompt knows. >> we didn't know that? >> and i mean, back to high school. you admit to be bookish in high school
. that is almost $8,000 per person. that according to the centers for medicare and medicaid services. the center says healthcare spending is rising at an unsustainable rate and that is why the president wants to do something. >> gretchen: remember what happened before christmas and then new year? the house and senate passed their versions of healthcare reform. both chambers are looking to raise money to support the respective bills. >> steve: the senate's so-called cadillac tax sounds like a tax on the rich but could the middle class ultimately end up footing the bill? fox news correspondent jim ingle takes a look in the new healthcare series debating the differences. >> both the house and senate need to raise lots of new revenue to cover the cost of reform. the house wants to impose a 5.4% sur tax on those with gross income of $500,000 a year or more. a money raising move with no impact on healthcare itself but unions think taxing the wealthy is a good move anyway. >> they got a tax cut from president bush. >> the senate raises the biggest chunk of revenues through a 40% tax on cadillac plans,
in the future. >> will they be going up? christine's got your business for you this morning. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. ♪ >>> 20 minutes after the hour, that means it's time for "minding your business." >> christine romans is here, and hopefully we'll start off 2010 on a positive note for business stories. yes or no, or am i dreaming? >> yes, we started off 2010 with ben bernanke on the front page of every american business newspaper this morning, he had what i'd like to call the super bowl of economics conferences in atlanta yesterday where he was defending the fed's rollover the past few years since the beginning of the decade, saying low interest rates was not the big cause of this housing bubble. something many critics in congress and some economists have said for some time, that ben bernanke and his friends at the fed kept interest rates way too low and that pumped money through the economy and that blew up the housing bubble. ben bernanke brought this slide himself at this conference yesterday, so if you missed it, this is what it is. this is what interest rates look like, t
taxes, it will raise taxes, it will hurt medicare, it will destroy jobs and run our nation deeper into debt. >> we're going to get back to jessica yellin and brianna keilar in just a little bit but first we want to go live. mitch mcconnell is holding a gop leadership conference and we want to listen in. >> and drive insurance rates up for most of the rest of our country. and i think we heard a large and resounding message yesterday in one of the most if not arguably the most liberal states in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a number of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated soon. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate, thanks to senator jim webb of virginia. he's made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who are principally responsible for certifying the election after earlier saying i
? they should pay more in medicare for the people in nebraska? didn't make sense. he said that's what angered the people. >> this morning, scott brown went on television and said his victory didn't have anything to do with martha coakley per say, what she did, said that he was able to tap into an aggravation the people had about a one party rule in washington. he also says he will be a different kind of republican senator. listen to this. >> i'm a different kind of republican. i've always just wanted to go down and solve the problem regardless of party and while they're in washington talking about what someone said in a book and what this happened, we have some very serious problems when it comes to overtaxation, overspending, and al-qaeda who are trying to kill us. so we need to get back to the basic and start solving problems that affect every person in this country. >> there is a headline this morning on grudge. when will he run for president? >> it is a headline in red letters because he does have a situation where he does look as though he's totally in control, he's captivated the moment

for the first time in ten years, sen kus count 2010, and why should you be counted? we will tell you. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> no, it is not a big government conspiracy, but it is the creation of the founding father norse the good of the country. we are talking about the every ten year census count just getting under way. christine romans explains why you should care and even take part in it. >> kyra, the census forms land in your mailbox in march, but the push has begun. the government will spend more than $14 billion and hire ultimately more than 1 million workers to track down the 300 million plus men, women, and children in this country. >> reporter: in new york's times square, a lawnch of a road show, not a broadway show, but a government show to get america ready for the 2010 census. >> it will have an enormous impact on communities and people across america. >> reporter: congressman gary locke heads up the agency that is supposed to count every single person in the country. >> it is the responsible of every person living in america whether they are voted or not, and wh
. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> i guarantee you this is something you've never seen before. the final preparations for "rick's list" which debuts today with the famous rick sanchez. you're almost about to go on. rick, congratulations and we're looking forward to seeing what you're doing today. i've had two conversations in the last hour i want to talk to you about. anderson cooper says the people who he's reporting from the streets of haiti on right now who are stealing candles and food from shops are not desperate. they are doing it because there's money exchanging hands. there's a deal going on there. he didn't say they're not desperate but he said it's a commercial enterprise. i talked to russel honore a few minutes ago who says they're not looters. >> this is a tricky question. we all need to be mindful of this. i spent a lot of time down in hurricane andrew in what was once called the largest natural disaster in the history of the united states. the former george bush, the president, gave me an award for the relief effort that through my station down there, wsvn we wer
and it seems that some of the key areas it needs to decrease, it's not going to, medicaid, medicare, veterans affairs, security programs, national security. >> those are the ones that politicians have-- >> that's what i say, social security, they're never going to cut those, what is cut? nasa and. >> i knew that one was going to set you back. >> what about nasa. >> the programs it's not a matter of the programs cut it's a matter of the this is 20 billion dollars. this is less than 1/2 of 1%. this is very infinite when we're talking about 3.8 trillion dollars. also when all of that is not going to be approved by congress. congress is going to say no, you're not making all the cuts as they did last year. >> right. >> last year they proposed 11.5 billion dollars in cuts and made 6.8 billion in cuts. this is going to be cut maybe in half and we're talking about such a tiny amount of cuts and all this have pre strant the president is calling for. >> liberals are not happy with the cuts already. >> well, you're going to upset somebody with any cut. >> the president seems to be coming out in a weird
without going in and tackling medicare and medicaid and social security. it is -- again, it's 19% of the budget. but it is a strong, strong message that he's actually sending to those independent voters that have been going away. obviously, some democratic leaders on capitol hill have to understand that, right? >> well, i think they have to. it doesn't mean started negotia balance the budget. post the 1994 election. it's almost as though obama doesn't want to wait for the election to start doing that. he's trying it out now and see if it works for him. >> and he's doing something bill clinton did so masterfully. you listen to that last sound clip that you played of these tax incentives. there's not huge. they're no overarching. he's not talking about revamping one-sixth of the economy. but it helps middle americans right now with tax incentives. and i think it's more significant than bill clinton's school uniforms. but it's those type of proposals that send a message to americans what kind of president he is. and right now, again, after massachusetts, it sounds like he's striking
this problem without cutting medicare, without the so-called public option, without the government stepping in and doing special deals with unions or senators from other states. let me tell you, obama care would be a very raw deal for people here in massachusetts. because we already have a system that's working here. 98% of our people are insured. and if we had a federal, government one size fits all plan, obama care, if you will, people here in massachusetts would have to pay more taxes, see their medicare cut. they don't want obama care. they'd rather have what we have here. >> prediction before you go, who is going to win? >> i think scott brown is going to win. i think it's going to surprise a lot of people. he's going to win pretty significantly. i think there's a very strong attitude here. we want to send washington a signal, no more monarchy reign from on high. >> joining us from newton, mass, mitt romney, thank you very much for joining us live. >> great to be with you guys. >> whether it's an off year election and special election, it's so intriguing. meanwhile, straight ahead, in
'll take a quick break. when we come back, christine romans will be mining your business. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> coming up in 21 minutes after the hour, time to mind your business. christine romans is here minding it for you. big delays with the home buyer tax credit. >> that's right. this is a very popular program. until maybe november 6 there hadn't been much trouble filing for this tax credit. but our folks last week at cnnmoney.com noticed there were huge delays and you couldn't file anymore for the tax credit. now that delay is over. can you file for the tax credit but expect a long time before you're going to get the money, and expect an awful lot of paperwork. no electronic filing from here on out for that home buyer tax credit. proof of resident dency, all kinds of mortgage documents, and expect two months to four months delays. why? don't blame the irs. this is because so many people were scamming the system. tens of thousands of people trying to claim this tax credit and they had no business doing so. in fact a bunch of little kids claimed this tax cre
on medicare. but also the public option which we've been talking about since the campaign. >> that's one of the big ones. >> yeah. the senate bill did not have it in, the house bill did. how they'll reconcile that exactly we're not sure, though we are hearing from our sources the final version probably won't have a public option, which is very controversial. bottom one, abortion language. the house bill was much stricter on abortion language than the senate bill. people keep saying how is this all going to play out? i'm not sure. i don't know. >> it is going to be really, really incredible to watch. >> we hear it is going to happen fast if it happens though, by the end of january, early february even if some of these closed-door meetings continue on. >> remind us again when it all goes into place? 2014? >> right. the implementation of a lot of these things, the pre-existing condition, non-discrimination for children will go into place faster but you're right, we won't see the effects for some time. >> we'll watch closely of course. dr. sanjay gupta. >>> cracking down on al qaeda in yemen
and help the economy and make medicare more affordable for seniors and continue to work on the economy as the president has, so, you know, right now as a party, we've got to remember why we were given the responsibility of leadership and deliver. >> david, you say this is a vote to go forward on the president's agenda, yet scott brown was talking about washington to be the 41st vote against health care. there is an exit poll from the election yesterday saying 48% of massachusetts voters said that health care was the single issue driving their vote and a majority opposed the president's plan. >> well, i think, well, the health care plan has become a character in many respects and i think people are fearing it. i think what we need to do -- i'm very confident if we can pass health care reform people will see that everybody who has health care reform, nothing is going to change. their costs are going to get lowered. it's going to give relief to seniors on prescription costs and have a huge economic impact in terms of businesses' ability to hire people so i think as a party and would argue
some prayers for rush. >> is he on medicare? >> for anybody in that position. but we were praying for him. but, yeah, if you make $15 million a year -- >> there you go, it works. >> you'll probably get better coverage. and all of us around this table. >> and you're a celebrity. >> he's going to make it. he's going to be okay. quick mention, anybody around here see "avatar"? a lot of people did. over the weekend, it moved into fourth place, already, all-time box office worldwide gross. all-time, crossed the $1 billion mark this weekend. only been out for 17 days, over $1 billion. it's expected to move up into second place, which could put it behind "titanic," which was also his movie. james cameron will have numbers one and two on the all-time list. >> and just like "titanic," i will not go see this movie. >> what do you have against blue people, joe? >> up next, who's targeting terrorism? we'll talk with michael sheehan and why he says our conventional wisdom is wrong. fiber one. i'm looking for some fiber. this bar is an excellent source of fiber. there's no fiber in this. it tas
very much for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> it's 20 minutes past the hour. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> it's coming up now on 23 minutes after the hour. our coverage of the rescue and relief efforts in haiti continue, but first time to mind your business. christine romans is here. the hearings object capitol hill provided a few fireworks. >> loyal blankfein got feisty with the chairman of this commission for the financial crisis, and he was actually asked point blank, it sounds to me you were selling people a car with faulty brakes and then taking insurance out on the driver. that's what it sounds like to the layman for what goldman sachs was doing in the runup to the crisis. but goldman's ceo saying no, we had very sophisticated clients, these are the products they wanted. he also said no one should say he wouldn't do things differently. >> anyone who says i wouldn't change a thing i think is crazy. knowing now what happened, whatever we did, whatever the standards of the time were, it didn't work out well. of course i'd go back and wished we had done whatever i
the real problem is, the growing deficits, the growing debt, medicare going bankrupt, social security -- >> everybody's figured out the rhetoric. they've figured out the rhetoric. now let's see if we can get anything done. >> how do you do? >> america's watching our political leaders and asking that very question. do they work for the country, for voters, for -- >> the concern crosses party line. >> we get the rhetoric. a kindergarten could do the rhetoric at this point. >> here's an actual plan. here's a way to do it. here's a specific, actual idea and plan. >> dylan ratigan is going to read that plan -- >> i already looked at it. your health care stuff makes a ton of sense. just assign the credit to the people and let people -- anyway, we'll do it another time. >> and let me ask really quickly, do you agree with chuck schumer and orrin hatch's plan that we talked about earlier today? harold ford also supports it, that you give tax cuts to small businesses in the form of payroll tax to hire unemployed workers? >> i think a payroll tax is a good idea, but we shouldn't be doing tax inc
and it was ben nelson. i mean here they gave away in perpetuity, the cost of medicare in nebraska. people know what's going on. it's called political exextorti, they figure it out. >> ben nelson, tom brokaw was talking about it. he is in so much trouble in nebraska. you can either pay everybody off, buy everybody off. back-room deals with ben nelson and big pharma, or go straight at the issue. you can't have it both ways. i want to say, though, it's important we push the time-out button here and see how much has changed in a year's time and understand it can change again, as i've said all along and my god, nicolle knows this very well. every presidency has many seasons. they can self-correct like bill clinton did in '95, and things can turn around. nicolle, you're staying with us? >> yes. >> sam, thank you for being here. >> thanks, i love being here. >> david gregory -- he's adorable. >> he's not adorable, he's great. >> he is adorable. >> two conservatives, sam stein. >> a different kind of adorable. >> sam, do you like this adoration going on? >> i like it, but my jewish mother likes it eve
it through the senate. he got that sweetheart deal on medicare for his state that became quite controversial and he's become a big focus of the whole campaign to pass health care reform. he's not alone. a lot of democrats are warning privately of their concerns about what's happening at home on health care. congressman earl pomeroy last week was in a ways and means committee, and he privately said, if we don't get rid of this health care bill, don't pass it and move on from it, i might as well retire because the voters will retire me otherwise. people are panicking because of those numbers at home. and massachusetts is a microcosm of that. >> we'll watch that one closely. we had seth myers, just watched him on "snl" talking about "game change." obviously, elizabeth edwards not portrayed very well in that book. what's her reaction been? >> she's read the book. she does not want to speak out about it yet, but she has allowed her friends to capture what her thinking is about the book. they essentially say the portrait is true, but what the book misses is the fact is -- how would you react if yo
it. >> what's the goodwill there to actually cut medicare and medicaid benefits? that's one of the critical ways this has become deficit-neutral. >> senator landrieu, thank you so much for your time this morning and thank you for the good work you are doing there in haiti. we appreciate it. >>> coming up next, a political playbook exclusive. democrats ramp up a new strategy. wall street, look out. >>> also, a lot to talk about this morning with san francisco mayor gavin newsom. he needs today to talk jobs with president obama. >>> and another big day of earnings reports, including goldman sachs and google. the latest from erin burnett live at new york stock exchange. >>> but first, here's rafael miranda with a check of the forecast. >> good morning. still good news for travelers. no major delays at the airports but we do have some rain moving into atlanta so anticipate some delays later on this morning. temperatures on the cold side in the northeast. 30 degrees in boston. 32 in the big apple. we expect lots of sunshine later on this afternoon. temperatures running above aver
